They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

Essendon Keilor College – Corona Update Term 2

Essendon Keilor College – Corona Update Term 2

Following advice from the Victorian Government on Tuesday 7 April, Essendon Keilor College will be moving to remote and flexible learning from Term 2 (beginning with a pupil-free day on Tuesday 14th April).
This is a step all Victorian government schools are taking to help slow the spread of corona virus (COVID-19). This means that all students who can learn at home must learn from home. This is a very clear directive from the Victorian Government based on the advice of the Chief Health Officer.
We will continue to offer limited on-site learning for those students who need to access this, including for students on days when they are not able to be supervised at home and no other arrangements can be made. Essendon Keilor College families need to check Compass posts for specific Campus details.
The Department’s latest advice on corona virus can be found at

It is important that we work together and support each other during this challenging time. We will be in touch with staff and parents and carers shortly with further details of what remote and flexible learning will look like at our school.
In the meantime, you might find it useful to look at the Department’s Learning from Home website. It provides resources and guidance for teachers and parents and carers.

By | News

Many of us have been following media reports today concerned about what the next few weeks will hold for our families, our schools, our workplaces and our homes.  It is important to continue to follow the advice given by the Australian and Victorian governments. This includes bringing forward school holidays to commence on Tuesday 24th  March. The decision on whether to re-open schools after the Term 1 holidays on Wednesday 15th April, will be determined following advice from the Chief Health Officer.  If school closures continue after the Term 1 holidays teachers will be providing online learning.

Parent Teacher Conferences – Cancelled – Normal school day Monday 16th March

Parent Teacher Conferences – Cancelled – Normal school day Monday 16th March

To the EKC school community.
I have decided that parent teacher interviews on Monday will not go ahead as planned. With the new advice that is coming through about gatherings of large numbers of people I think it is sensible to be conservative and do everything I can to protect the health of all of us.
Classes will run as normal on Monday and students should attend as usual.
At this stage there is no information about possible school closures. If the government decides to close schools I will inform the College community immediately.
I apologise for any inconvenience, but the health and well being of staff, students and parents is my top priority.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any concerns.
